We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.

  • Confessions of a Sociopath

As M. E. Thomas says of her fellow sociopaths, we are your neighbors, co-workers, and quite possibly the people closest to you: lovers, family, friends. Our risk-seeking behavior and general fearlessness are thrilling, our glibness and charm alluring. Our often quick wit and outside-the-box thinking make us appear intelligent - even brilliant. We climb the corporate ladder faster than the rest, and appear to have limitless self-confidence.... Who are we? We are highly successful, non-criminal sociopaths and we comprise 4% of the American population (that's 1 in 25 people!).

it gives you a gross perspective from the sociopaths point of view. I've been torn in two. I'm not sure if I'm sickened with the valuable information within this book on weather I'm against the authors words, or horrifically coming to the realization that I agree with her.

The psychopath carefully selects the most indifferent and heartbreaking way imaginable to abandon you. They destroy you as a way to reassure themselves. Psychopath Free will help you out of the darkness so that you can begin making better choices that will forever alter the course of your life. So say farewell to love triangles, cryptic letters, self-doubt, and manufactured anxiety. You are no longer a pawn in the mind games of a psychopath. You are free.

This is ridiculously accurate. I've dealt with sociopath after sociopath. This books knowledge on the matter is terrifying. Everyone should read this. It gave me hope that I am now better equipped to deal with these issues. But also gave a sense of hopelessness knowing how many people might be a sociopath.

Sociopaths and psychopaths are slightly different, but both types of people have Antisocial Personality Disorder. This basically means that these people are monsters wearing human faces. They hurt people for pleasure and never feel remorse for the horrible things that they do. Having one of these people in your life is never a good thing.

I love the stories. Very helpful to deal with these monsters. I've dealt with them before. It's terrifying how accurate this is. Apparently I'm an Empath? I'll have to look into it further. Awesome book.

This is a book aimed at helping people recover from the terrible, horrific emotional and psychological turmoil that a psychopathic/ sociopathic abuse situation may have brought in their lives. It will help listeners understand and process the experience and move on. Revenge on the abuser is impossible as well as unhealthy. You need to concentrate on looking after yourself.

Do you have a person in your life that is just a little off and by a little off, I mean that they're full blown strange? Are they living like an emperor in their world and using everyone around them like pawns? Are they quite possibly the smartest person you know but not living a life that is actually fulfilling by normal standards? Are they nice to you, but only when they really want something from you? You may have found yourself a sociopath.

I have personally dealt with several sociopaths. Sometimes several at once. This book is a great way to start understanding and fighting back. I'll consider this book the basics of sociopaths. I loved all of it. It equipped me to better fight against Sociopaths. Thank you.

Bullies aren't limited to the playground. These days, they roam our offices and can be found everywhere from break rooms to boardrooms. They don't steal your lunch money, but they can make your work life a living hell - and even ruin your career. Whether the bully is a boss or a coworker...whether you're the target of manipulation, intimidation, verbal abuse, or deliberate humiliation, Beating the Workplace Bully will show you how to fight back.

Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.
